with this health care reform. >> all right. next up, mitt romney says that under obama care, some kind of supernatural government board will decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. listen. >> he has as a model for doing that a board of people, at the government, an unelected board, an appointed board, who are going to decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. a and, true? >> john, i don't know about supernatural, but it is call the independent payment advisory board. and what this board does is it makes recommendations for certain changes. for example, it might say, you know what, we think we ought to pay hospitals less to do x, y, z procedures under medicare. so all of this is about medicare and it's about recommendations. this board does not go into mrs. smith's hospital room and says, oh, mrs. smith, we know you think you need a new hip, but we don't think you need it. that's not what they do. they don't make those patient-by-patient recommendations. the concern, john, is when this board recommends reducing payments for certain things, that hospitals are going to t
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are at risk of being dropped. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this, and the republicans had the plan. they put a plan out. they put a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan basis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. and governor romney at the beginning of this debate wrote and said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice
, from dennis miller, obama better hope a kicked rear end is covered under obamacare. next from indecision. the october surprise in this election is that mitt romney is actually good at something. ouch. jim sterling tweets, obama is winning the "looking amazingly condescending when the other guy talks" race. finally this one for you from doug benson. just 14 minutes until we can all go back to preferring the kand date we liked when the debate started. all from twitter. we have a lot more. you know, as far as what happened last night and i promise to hear from the president and it sounds as though he is still debating today. he spoke just a couple hours ago in denver. here he is, president barack obama. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> that was the president on last night's debate and, well mitt ro
is my hero and i love her, is going to come and talk to us, next. i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt romney - tough on china? since when? >>> welcome back. this just in. those weekly jobless numbers are just in. alison kossic has those for us. >> rose 3,467. the job market continues to be week. social networking site reaches 1 billion active users every month. ceo and founder mark zuckerberg said what it means for him personally when he talked to matt lauer of nbc. >> it's just this amazing honor, to be able to come into work every day and build things that help a billion people stay connected with the people they care about every month, it's just unbelievable. >> and shares of facebook right now, soledad, are up 1.5
-debate campaigning as he arrives. every day counts. wolf? >> president obama is spending the next couple of days in henderson, nevada, gearing up for wednesday's debate. our white house correspondent dan lothian is over at the white house. he getting new information. what's the latest on his xaeb preparation, dan? >> reporter: campaign official telling me that the president began those practices last might after arriving in defense nevada and continued these rehearsals this morning in nevada as well. taking only a break this afternoon. one of the things that they are really working on is trying to get the president to be more concise and in his answers. you know, sometime it is president can be long winded and the campaign has admitted this and it is not the most effective way to deliver your message. so they are trying to get the president to answer these questions with very few words. he has a small team of adviser around him including david axelrod, former white house communications director anita dunn. and also brian, one of the president's economic adviser. they are not talking about some o
it indirectly. and romney's also changed -- i'm sorry. obama has changed his tune on the promise for the future. the new plan, he said, starting august 8th in colorado and repeated is he won't raise your taxes next year. so after 2013 there is no promise from obama for any american on any tax protection. he's open to raising taxes on anyone and everyone. and he's going to have to because even with his tax increases on the higher income people, he runs a $6.7 trillion debt over the next decade. and that buffett rule tax raises less than 1% of the debt he's running up. he's got to go straight at the heart of the middle class to pay for his bigger government. >> i think it's very interesting. i still have not heard from mr. norquist whether any tax increases should be necessary to deal with the budget deficit and the budget deficit we face as a country. are we going to try to do this all through spending cuts? and if so, how in the world do we do it without eviscerating medicare, medicaid, social security, and military spending? >> well, very clearly as you know, the republicans actually have a pl

welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama the democratic nominee and former massachusetts governor romney, the republican nominee. this debate and the next three-- two presidential, one vice presidential-- are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15-minute segments with two-minute answers for the first question. then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions via the internet and other means but i made the final selections and, for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the segments, as i announced in advance, will be three on the economy and one each on health care, the roll of government, and governing. with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics and choices. both candidates will also have two minute closing statements. the audience here in the hall has promis
is about to the next 40 years. there are 100 reasons to deny barack obama for more years and office. none are more important than defending the freedoms that make this country great. these are the freedoms we have to fight for. these are the freedoms at stake in this election. fight. do everything you can between now and election day. fight for these kids and grandkids here today. [cheers and applause] fight for our soldiers who put it all on the line defending our freedom overseas so they can come home to an america as free as when they left it. [cheers and applause] send a message to the national news media. their coverage of this race is a national disgrace. [cheers and applause] you know, we have a message for cnn, abc, cbs. you will not decide the outcome of this election. we, the people, will decide the outcome of this election. we live in a country that is getting harder to recognize every day. led by a president who mocks our values, be littles' our faith, and is threatened by our freedoms. you know it and i know it. barack obama is another washington, d.c. politician who will say
interesting story lines today and for the next two weeks is how does the obama campaign react to what happened last night in. >> oh, absolutely. >> we're going to find out. because maybe we're missing something. i can't figure it out. >> listen, i think they'll even admit, mika, that mitt romney had a great night, but they're going to go in. we're talking style here. >> i know. >> because that's what moves debates. they're going to pick apart everything mitt romney said. we're going to see it on 30-second ads. >> and all their inconsistencies. a lot of them. >> there's a lot to pick at now because there's much more specificity on the table, and some of the things romney said last night are vulnerable to attack in new ways, new and effective ways for the president. >> too bad he wasn't attacked last night. joe klein, thank you very much. >> thank you, joe. >>> ahead, chuck todd will join us from the debate site in denver. coming up, senior adviser to the obama campaign, david axelrod. and in a few minutes, senior adviser to the romney campaign, ed gillespie. keep it right here on "morning joe."
is agitated, his arms fail around a bit. and president obama has a tendency to go on and on. he's long-winded and both candidates do well when they are standing at podiums. now in the next half hour of "early start," we'll break down what each candidate has to establish with richard socarides and erick erickson. >> i'm a little nervous for them. >> this is the super bowl right now. >>> a pennsylvania judge has temporarily blocked a key component of that state's new voter i.d. law. voter does not have to show a state-approvedived in order to vote. supporters say it will prevent fraud at the polls but opponents say it is a chance to suppress the democratic minority vote. >>> and mike mcqueary claims in a lawsuit that he was the only assistant football coach not invited to interview for employment under bill o'brien in the wake of the child sex abuse scandal. mcqueary said he witnessed an apparent sexual encounter between sandusky and the boy. >>> a florida woman could face a $500 fine and up to 60 days in jail for hitching a ride on top of a manitee. she turned herself into sheriffs near
that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no. not the president. romney's biggest weakness. >> well, i think part of the challenge is how do you succinctly get to that and at the same time when you only have 90 seconds or 120 seconds to answer a question then also be able to share your vision and your compassion to the voters that are watching at home. to be able to contrast the president's record and his vision, share with that in a compassionate way, that's challenging to do in 120 seconds. >> here's a big challenge that the president has, bill. look at this. likely voters we asked who will win the presidential debate? 56% said the president. 32% sai
by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> paul ryan reacting very quickly. mitt romney reacting very quickly to biden's comments that the middle class over the past four years, four years being the obama administration, have been "buried." >> first of all, wolf, the romney campaign really has nothing to say in 24 hours. this is paul ryan who on fox news on sunday couldn't explain the romney/ryan tax plan. not because it's complicated, because the math don't add up. and for the middle class it hurts the middle class. it digs the middle class into the dead years of 2000 to 2010. >> how problemmatic? >> the republicans have nothing but gaffes. they love when joe biden speaks because for some reason they like to take those comments and blow them out of proportion flt i just think it's nonsense. if they want to talk about joe biden and who will help the middle class, that's an argument i think the democrats would like to have. >> there will be a lot of discussion of joe biden's remarks right now. >> donna's right. we like to talk about joe biden because he gives us a
points they would do if they became president in the next four years. >> and on that point then, three specific points that you think obama's going to give. >> lower the corporate rate, do tax reform and rebuild every school that's over over 50 years. >> how's that any different than what romney would tell you? >> it's not. >> is it shocking to you? >> in four years, he's had one of the -- he's had the senate on his side. and what can he say he's done? if you want to ask the question that ronald reagan asked in 1980 is are you better off today than you were four years ago. is there less unemployment than there was four years ago? the answer for at least 23 million americans is no. >> ask the 800,000 people a month that are losing their jobs, the answer is yes. >> that they're better off now than they were four years ago? >> the unemployment rate is above where it was. ronald reagan's highest unemployment was 10.1%. when he ran for re-election was 7.1%. >> what was it when he started? >> what? >> what was the unemployment rate when obama started? 7.9. it's at 8.1. >> we call that the bu
? >> no, i don't. the expectations are most americans believe president obama's going to win the debates. that's why it's a great opportunity for governor romney to have an upset. he needs an upset. i think that he can do that on this debate and the next two debates. we go back historically, we remember it was a game changer when president kennedy debated richard nixon. same was true with ronald reagan when he debated jimmy carter. it can make a difference. mitt romney needs to come out and be very aggressive about the president's policies and his solutions. and i think he will do real good. >> we know they've been rehearsing zingers or we're told by a "new york times" report this morning that mitt romney has been practicing zingers. i guess practicing them on some of his aides as well. you just talked about substance. others have been focusing on, well, really it's the moments and the zingers that make the difference. which do you think it is? >> there has to be a sense throughout -- at the end of the debate, the viewer will have a sense as to who can be the better leader for the united
they call the 3 ds. dissatisfied, disappointed and disenchanted obama voters. it's about convincing them that over the next four years, you will do a better job to improve their lives. what they're looking for is those, that narrower and narrower slice of swing voters. i mean, he's got a double job to do. >> he had a convention speech and he wasn't able to do it. >> that's why he's got to do it tonight. so but he's got a double job. he's got to talk to those swing voters who are disaffected about president obama, but then make sure his base turns out and he's got to get the base enthusiastic. now, what the base wants and those swing voters want maybe two different things. >> but how many people are still undecided? >> this many. >> but there are still people who are persuadable. >> have debates really persuaded them. >> john kerry, going into that first debate, was seven points behind. after that first debate, he was only two points behind. now, we know he ended up losing because president bush came back and did a better job in the second debate. but it did narrow the gap for john kerry.
challenge is not so much to make a case against president obama over the last four years. there's no question voters are ambivalent about the performance. he's got to make a case that he can make the next four years better. we have a poll out, national journal poll. are you better off? are you worse off? or about the same as four years ago. among the about the same folks, people who don't say they see any improvement over obama the president is still leading by over 20 points. that is what romney has to change. >> i want to share something "the new york times" says. the romney team has been included the debates are about moments and have equipped him with a dear riis of zingers he has memorized and been practicing on aides since august. we've got some here that we want to share. >> there you go again. i want you to know that also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no j
for a peace deal with the taliban. what is next for us inside the war-torn country? jennifer griffin is here to break down the details. plus, on the eve of the first presidential debate both president obama and governor mitt romney are hard at work on their final preps. we'll have an update from the campaign trail next. gregg: there are plans to hold peace talk with the taliban and they've now collapsed, this as nato commander's try to find a new way to boost stability in the region as forces begin to head home. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has the details from the pentagon. how seriously did the u.s. military take these peace talks with the taliban. >> not very. this was essentially a state-department-led idea from with some backing from the white house and the president's national security advisers over at the white house when richard holbrooke was still alive as ambassador and envoy to pakistan he backed the idea because many military commander's believed you could not shoot yourself out of this war, out of the war in afghanistan. the pentagon also never believed that
this in the next two hours of "newsroom." as the day rolls on, president obama and mitt romney will likely spin those numbers, romney likely to say that the president's plan is not working and the president likely to say my policies are working. it just takes time to heal this economy. underemployed and still struggling, under their mortgage. part of our middle class talk back. welcome, moira. >> good morning, carol. >> we make a big deal of these numbers every month. do you pay attention to them? >> yes and no. i'm actually tired of the pundits tell iing me what to thk and what's going on with the numbers. i just want the employers to start hiring. what i've heard out there is that there are jobs, but being a part of the underemployed or the ones that are really trying to find something a little bit more, the challenges, it's taking months and months of interviews and waiting. and i'm just so frustrated that it's -- >> so this 7.8% unemployment rate, does that affect you at all? does that do something psychologically for you that says, oh, my goodness, the economy is getting better? >> no. no.
that and make the case against barack obama. >> thanks so much, jim vandehei. we're going to be watching. >> thank you. >> how is mitt romney now preparing for the big debate? we'll talk to his top adviser kevin madden coming up next on "andrea mitchell reports."

that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it o

're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
performance. >> a lot of people disappointed in president obama's performance last night. last night critics say president obama spent too much time looking down at something on the podium. did you notice that? >> yes. >> today the president apologized said at the next debate, no more angry birds. >> romney talked last night about cutting funding to pbs, the home of "sesame street" and big bird was not happy. did you see what big bird did to romney's car after the debate? show what happened. that is unbelievable. he is not happy. he is not happy. >> there is no red america, there is no blue america! this is only the america that can't believe how bad this guy did in the debate. how bad was the defeat? obama lost despite mitt romney doing this. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i love pbs, big bird and you, too. i'm not going to spend money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> the [ bleep ] fired big bird! america's favorite bird! he [ bleep ] big bird and won! >> romney won with the sound off. dude, he's yelling at you. look up. look up! what are you
in a database or online from a group. that would be my guess where you go next. the other political thing will happen is that whatever the outcome of the election, democrats use this as a populist appeal. they say they are with the working guy. i think obama signals that he would pursue a constitutional amendment. did he said is not possible. he may go door-to-door on this. some polls suggest the eu would be lower by it used to be just an last few cycles, that that was it beauregard's -- a bar partisan rally. there is a potential for one party to take this as a baton. >> at the same time the bipartisan ground has disappeared, it has become a much bigger issue among democrats. senator find gold was a patsy to the democratic leadership. in many ways, that was a miracle. what you have now in the previous congress until 2010, led a majority of democrats supporting the fair elections now act. it is deeply imbedded at the highest levels. of the have not really seen that before. if democrats were to take back the house, potentially, you have a different political scenario. republicans would have
